Mundi Salus Qui Nasceris

This hymn was used for Compline on Sundays and Weekdays From Christmas Eve to the Feast of the Presentation in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Mundi salus qui nasceris,
Iesu puer; nos respice;
Da moribus castis tuam
Referre nos infantiam.

Fessos diurno dum levat
Labore nocturnus sopor,
Defende, Pastor, bestiis
Tuas ab infestis oves.

O Virgo, quæ paris Deum,
Fovesque lactentem sinu,
Hunc flecte nobis qua vales,
Benigna mater, gratia.

Qui natus es de Virgine,
Iesu, tibi sit gloria,
Cum Patre, cumque Spiritu,
In sempiterna sæcula. Amen.

Words: Fr. Charles Coffin, 1736.
